    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Community College of Philadelphia part-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Lovely campus. Good facilities and staff support. Union gives you much better pay, partial health benefits, and seniority privileges.

    Cons

    Some students are ill-prepared for college work, making the job more challenging. Board of directors includes no educators.

    Advice to Management

    Cut down on the number and the salaries administrators and hire more faculty members. Whatever they're all administrating seems to have little to with actual education.

    I have been working at Community College of Philadelphia full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    You have an opportunity to engage with students as assist them along their academic and career path. The employee benefits are excellent; the President of the College believes in the mission and vision of the College and walks the talk.

    Cons

    Limited opportunity for professional growth; the culture of the institution to maintain the status quo can stifle creativity.

    Advice to Management

    Become the change that education needs and not repeat what has been done or what is convenient. Listen to the students and value those who want the college to grow.
